ARKK Copenhagen’s newest sneaker silhouette is a futuristic, sock-like high top that debuts in two neon-accented colorways on Friday, September 7th, 2018 (1:00 PM CET / 7:00 AM EST).
The OCTAKO cops ARKK’s custom 3D-knit FutureGrid upper – an innovative mesh woven in three distinct knit patterns for a reinforced yet minimalist sock-like structure. Designed for the sneakerhead who’s not afraid to challenge expectations and push the limits, the OCTAKO features rich technical details including ARKK branded logo detailing across vamp, a custom heel tab, and a moUlded silicone heel piece. ARKK’s next-generation WAVE13 sole unit (new for FW18) provides structural support. Inspired by Denmark’s The Blue Planet Aquarium (designed by 3XN Architects), WAVE13 features under arch curves alongside contrasting geometric lines that result in added cushioning and a more voluminous silhouette.
